NICER seeks panel members for Cycle 3 proposal review

4 December 2020

The Neutron Star Interior Composition Explorer (NICER) is an X-ray experiment on the International Space Station, studying a wide variety of X-ray phenomena including Galactic and extragalactic black holes, accreting binary systems, pulsars and other neutron stars, supernovae and tidal disruption events, and a range of other X-ray emitting astrophysical sources and transient X-ray events.

NICER is currently soliciting X-ray and subject matter experts to serve as panel members for the Cycle 3 Guest Observer proposal review, to be held virtually in January 2021 (likely 20-23 January). Honoraria will be provided for non-civil-servant panel members. Serving on peer review panels is an excellent opportunity for community members to gain insight into the proposal-evaluation process, and to sharpen their skills for writing their own proposals.

Interested parties should contact Dr. Elizabeth Ferrara at elizabeth.c.ferrara@nasa.gov, indicating whether they would like to serve as a member or as a panel chair, and include a brief overview of their area(s) of expertise.
